After releasing late last month, The King of Fighters ALLSTAR has now launched its first ever crossover event. From today, November 26th, until December 17th, you'll be able to collect iconic Tekken characters from across the legendary series such as Heihachi Mishima, Jin Kazama, Kazuya Mishima, Armor King, Ling Xiaoyu, and Paul Phoenix.

Those who are just starting out will be able to choose between Jin Kazama and Iori Yagami 98 when in the tutorial, while active players can obtain these guys by completing limited-time in-game event missions. More Tekken characters can be earned by completing the latest Event Dungeon and Super Missions, or through login bonuses, Tekken-themed Fighter & Battle Card Summon Boxes, and the Prize Wheel.

Here are some other new additions to KOF ALLSTAR:

  • Geese Howard XIV fighter (available today)
  • Thanksgiving Bonus Time Event (starting on 28th of November)
  • Mr. Big 96 and Li Xiangfei 99 fighters (available on December 1st)

Here are some small changes:

  • AP spent reduced by half for Gold Dungeon (EASY, NORMAL, HARD)
  • Obtainable Gold doubled for Gold Dungeon (EXPERT)
  • Obtainable Affinity items doubled for Story Mode
